Sažetak
In the Classical Dinaric Karst of Croatia, over 11, 500 caves have been explored so far, more than 1, 000 of which were discovered during construction works. Caves discovered on the construction sites of highways lacked natural entrances on the surface. Over the past 20 years they have been systematically investigated and remediated to allow completion of the roads. Some special examples will be presented during the lecture, such as the large hall in the Vrata Tunnel of the Zagreb – Rijeka Highway, and caves in Croatia’s longest tunnels. Due to the size, shape, position, and hydrogeological parameters of the cave within the karst system, it was necessary to design and construct a special bridge through the cave in the Vrata Tunnel. The cave’s vaulted ceiling had to be reinforced and stabilized. This presentation will include video and photos of the most interesting karst and cave locations in Dinaric Karst. Biography Mladen Garašic, PhD. Geology, Hydrogeology, and Geological Engineering. Born in Zagreb, Croatia, in 1951, Dr. Garašic graduated in geology and karst hydrogeology in 1977, master of science 1981, and doctorate in geosciences and geological engineering in 1986. He is a scientist, and a professor of geology, karst hydrogeology, applied geology, engineering geology and speleology at the University of Zagreb, and has authored more than 330 scientific and professional papers. He serves as a committee member for the Croatian Academy of Science and Arts, UNESCO World Heritage Team for the Dinaric Karst, International Association of Hydrogeologists, and International Association for Engineering Geology and the Environment. Dr. Garašic started skiing in 1955 and won the Junior Skiing competition of Croatia in 1963. He has been a member of the Croatian Mountaineering Association since 1955 and was awarded by the Association in 1969 and 1981. He started caving in 1963 and is the founder and president of several caving clubs in Croatia. He served as first president of the Croatian Speleological Federation from 1990 to 2010 and is a life member of the U.S. National Speleological Society. Since 1993, he has served as Croatia’s delegate to the International Union of Speleology and to the European Speleological Federation beginning in 2009. Dr. Garašic has conducted research in, and explored and visited nearly 5, 000 caves in 64 countries. He has led many speleological expeditions in the longest and deepest caves in Croatia, Europe, and the world. He has also studies about 1, 000 caves without natural entrances, discovered by tunnels and quarries, and evaluated their hydrogeology and engineering geology.
